Baldur’s Gate 3 withdrew from the list of 10 most rated games on Metacritic

Baldur’s Gate 3 was the most rating new game of 2023, even ahead of the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, going out in the ten most rated games.

For some time, Baldur’s Gate 3 climbed up the rating, first took the ninth position, and then overtook Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 and taking the seventh place. Unfortunately, as a result of recent reviews of Baldur’s Gate 3, the total score of the game decreased from 97 to 96, which is why it fell to 30th place in the list of the highest-rated games of all time according to Metacritic, including different versions of the same games. It is located between Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Resident Evil 4 – two games that many call the best in the industry, so it cannot be said that Baldur’s Gate 3 at the bottom.

Moreover, 100% of critics reviews on Baldur’s Gate 3 were positive, although some publications put her not 10/10, but 9/10. Для тех, кому интересно, в десятку самых рейтинговых игр вновь вошли The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, Grand Theft Auto 4, SoulCalibur, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto 5, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, since Baldur’s Gate 3 lost its place.

Despite the fact that the Baldur’s Gate 3 PC version has dropped out of the top 10, there is still a chance that this version of the game will enter there again. The game will be released on PS5 on September 6, and due to the features of the classification of games on Metacritic, it will be considered as completely separate from the version for PC. If Baldur’s Gate 3 on PS5 gains a sufficient number of positive reviews, then this can return the game in the ten most rating games of all time. If this does not succeed, then Larian will have the third chance – the Baldur’s Gate 3 version for Xbox, although the date of its exit has not yet been determined.

Despite the fact that getting into the top ten is more prestigious, the hit of Baldur’s Gate 3 in the first thirty of the most rating games is still an incredible achievement. Baldur’s Gate franchise is generally becoming one megachit after another, and Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn got into a hundred best. Baldur’s Gate 1 received almost universal recognition of critics during its exit, which made the Baldur’s Gate trilogy one of the most rated games.
